An alternative for Obamacare for seniors: You're a sick senior citizen and the government says there's no nursing care available for you. The new plan gives anyone 50 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 4 Politicians.
Of course, this means you'll be sent to prison, where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning and all the health care you need.
Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a new hip, knees, lungs or heart You know what? They are all covered. As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now.
Who will be paying for all of this? The same government that wants to let anyone crossing the southern border have the same benefits of Americans who were born here, while telling you they can't afford to take care of you.
Best of all, you can get rid of 4 useless politicians while you're at it. In addition, because you are a prisoner, you no longer have to pay income tax.
On the other hand, the Supreme Court is in session today hearing a crucial case on the validity of parts of the law and its' decision may wildly change Obamacare. If not, we've always got the new Plan B.
The News As I See It: Another scandal for Hillary Clinton — they’re saying she used a private email address when she was secretary of state, which means the government couldn’t archive and preserve her emails. Experts say that if this violates any federal rules...... she'll still be president. Obama said, “Don’t worry, we saw Hillary's emails.. We read everyone’s emails."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to Congress. It aired in Israel with a five-minute delay. Israelis had to wait five minutes to hear what their president was saying, or as Americans call that, watching Obama live. "Every speech … I make … takes … three hours."
Jeb Bush is getting his presidential campaign in gear. Last week he said he supports a path to citizenship for immigrants. He said, "I believe in an America where hard work and dedication can lead to any job that your brother and dad once had."
Nancy Pelosi said she was "near tears" during the prime minister's speech to Congress because it insulted America's intelligence. So please, nobody tell Nancy Pelosi about "The Bachelor."
Taco Bell is testing a new dessert item called Cap'n Crunch Delights. They are warm doughnut holes filled with sugary cream and rolled in Cap'n Crunch. They sure know how to capture the flavors of old Mexico.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) If someone says they don't speak English, tell them their shoes are untied and see if they look down. 2) I went to Match.com. It wasn't to meet women. I went to search for a mate for one of my socks. 3) I told my doctor I had been noticing a burning sensation in my eyes and difficulty breathing after sex. He told me it was just the Mace. 4) I tell people I'm divorced, but technically, my ex-wife got lost in a corn maze. 5) For the person who lost a bundle of $20 bills tied up in a rubber band, I've got good news. I found your rubber band.....and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Pisces - March 4th: Half of what I say is meaningless, the other half is pure gold, purer than any snow that ever fell. Purer than the white cover on that classic Beatles' album. The trick here is to ascertain which half. Hell, flip a coin. That's what I usually do.....

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Two elderly women were in a beauty parlor getting their hair done, when in walked a young chick with a low-cut blouse that revealed a beautiful rose tattooed on one boob.
One woman leaned over to the other and said, "Poor thing. She doesn't know it, but in 50 years she'll have a long-stemmed rose in a hanging basket."
Little Johnny's class were on a trip to their local police station. There they saw pictures tacked to a big bulletin board. The label clearly read, "The 10 Most Wanted."
One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the photo of a wanted person. The policeman said, "Yes, the detectives want him very badly."
Little Johnny asked, while tugging on the man's belt, "Uh, mister, why didn't you keep them when you took their pictures?"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Little Johnny comes down for breakfast and since they live on a farm, his mother asks him if he has done his chores. Little Johnny replies, "Not yet." His mother tells him he can't have any breakfast until he does his chores.
Pissed off, Johnny goes to feed the chickens and he kicks a chicken. He goes off to feed the cows and he kicks a cow. Then he goes to feed the pigs and he kicks a pig. He goes back in for breakfast and his mother gives him a bowl of dry cereal.
Johnny asks, "How come I don't get any eggs and bacon? Why don't I have any milk on my cereal?" His mother says "I saw you kick the chicken so you don't get any eggs for a week. I saw you kick the pig so you don't get any bacon for a week either. I also saw you kick the cow, so for a week you aren't getting any milk."
Just then his father comes down for breakfast, trips over the cat and kicks it as he is walking into the kitchen. Little Johnny looks up at his mother and with a smile says, "Are you going to tell him or should I?"
While taxiing at Atlanta Airport, the crew of a U.S. Air flight departing for Miami made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727.
An irate female ground controller lashed out at the U.S. Air crew, screaming, "U.S. Air 771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"
Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically, "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to!"
She went on, "You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, U.S. Air 771?"
The humbled crew responded, "Yes, ma'am." Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of U.S. Air 771.
Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit around Gatwick was definitely running high.
Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone and asked, "Wasn't I married to you once?"
That's it for today, my little junebugs. Remember, making fun of an older person's age is like mocking them for getting hit by a train when you're only standing a little further down the same tracks. The plan is AREA 51 for happy hour.

Yep, they said, "Cheer up, things could be worse." So I cheered up and, sure enough.....things got worse. Not end of the world "worse", but I did notice one of my neighbors herding animal pairs towards an ark.
My toilet went south over the weekend and, although I was able to jerry-rig it until today, it had to be replaced which was no easy feat.
A little later, I was having problems with an AOL program and figured I'd delete it and reinstall it. Nope, the program is no longer online and, although archaic, it served some functions for me on this blog. By the way, it's AOL 9.6 if anyone has a copy.
So, not much substance to today's post, but on the bright side, I didn't shoot my computer.......
On a sad note Actor Leonard Nemoy and baseball player Minnie Minoso both passed away in the last few days. Rest in peace gentlemen.
The News As I See It: There's this picture of a dress that someone took, and people online are fighting over what color it is. Some people say it's black and blue. Some say it's white and gold. I think someone should ask Obama, our country's first gold president.
After the FCC issued the new net neutrality rules, Obama posted a thank you letter online addressed to the millions of people who helped support the change. He finished with a heartfelt plea, "Could someone please tell me what net neutrality is?"
In New Jersey, Chris Christie joked that he gave up The New York Times for lent. But then his priest told him he had to give up something he'd actually miss.
KFC has teamed up with scientists in the U.K. to create edible coffee cups made with cookies and wrapped in sugar. It's perfect if you've ever wanted to wake up and give up at the same time.
This Date In History: 1836; Texas declared its independence from Mexico. 1877; Rutherford B. Hayes was declared president by a U.S. electoral commission since the original result was too close to call. He was the only president elected this way. 1917; Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory and Puerto Ricans gained American citizenship.
1923; The first issue of Henry Luce's TIME magazine appeared on newsstands. 1933; King Kong, starring Fay Wray, premiered in New York City. 1949; Captain James Gallagher completed the first non-stop around the world flight. He completed the 23,452-mile journey in 94 hours, 1 minute.
1956 ; Morocco gained independence from France. 1962; Philadelphia Warriors center Wilt Chamberlain scored an NBA-record 100 points in a basketball game. 2001; The Taliban began the destruction of ancient Buddha statues in Afghanistan.
2008; Dmitri A. Medvedev, a former aide to Russian president Vladimir Putin who has never held elected office, won the Russian presidential election in a landslide. Putin remained in a position of power, serving as Medvedev's prime minister.
Picture Of The Day: Marie Harf, the spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, said about the Islamic terrorists, "We can’t win ‘by killing them’ - We need to get help their economies so they can have job opportunities." So, lets get them a job where the moronic Marie surely must have worked in the past.
Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) The teacher asked the kids to pick out a "famous past explorer" for a class assignment. Three of the kids picked Internet Explorer 8. 2) My kids are always accusing me of having a "favorite child" which is ridiculous because I don't really like any of them. 3) I'm worried my dog will never find out who's a good boy. 4) I told my friends, "I'm frying some fish for supper, so y'all come over and eat." What I meant was, "You're also gonna be helping me move my piano." 5) Dogs lick each other's asses to tell each other they like them - just like politicians.....and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Pisces - March 2nd: My astrologer and sometimes psychic told me that water dissolves alien beasts and some witches. This may or may not affect your balance when handing a glass of water to your mother-in-law.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: An older man went to a job interview. The Human Resources manager asked him, "What is your greatest weakness?" The man replied, "Honesty."
The Human Resources manager said, "I don't think honesty is a weakness." The older man said, "I don't really give a shit what you think."
The young reporter was interviewing a woman who had just reached her hundredth birthday. The reporter asked, "To what do you attribute your remarkable good health?"
The old woman replied, "Well, I've always eaten moderately, worked hard, I don't smoke or drink and I keep good hours." The reporter asked, "Have you ever been bedridden?"
The elderly lady replied, "Well, sure, but I would appreciate it if you don't put that in your newspaper."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: About 200 dead crows were found near Boston, Massachusetts and there was great concern about the possibility of "Avian Flu". They had a bird pathologist examine the remains of all the crows and he confirmed the problem was definitely not Avian Flu, to everyone's relief.
However, he did determine that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks and only 2% were killed by impact with cars. The city then hired a Ornithological Behaviorist to determine why there were such disproportionate percentages for "truck versus car" kills.
The Ornithological Behaviorist determined the cause in very short order. When crows eat road kill, they always post a "look-out crow" in a nearby tree, to warn of any impending danger. His conclusion was that the lookout crow could easily say "Cah", but he could not say "Truck"!
A woman had bags under her eyes and wanted to get them removed. She went to a plastic surgeon and asks the doctor, "I can't get rid of these bags, can you help me?"
The doctor told he is willing to try a new experimental technique on her. He will put a crank in the back of her head and when she sees bags under her eyes, she is to use the crank and the bags will go away.
She gets the crank put in her head and leaves. It works for a while until one day, she can't get rid of the bags under her eyes. She cranks and cranks as hard as she can, but they just wont go away. So she goes to the doctor.
She says to the doctor, "This was working for a while, but I can't seem to get rid of these bags under my eyes." The doctor replies, "Those aren't bags....those are your boobs." The woman replied, "I guess that explains this goatee."
That's it for today, my little jelly beans. Remember, the Great Wall of China is one of the 7 wonders of the world just because it's a Chinese product that's lasted more than a month,

Arguments are never a good idea, a lose-lose proposition and usually about something I don't care about anyway. Men are at a disadvantage because our memories are like mirrors and women never, ever, forget anything!
The most important thing for a man to remember is to abandon all logic. Women don't use it and you certainly shouldn't allow it to handicap you.
Secondly, when cornered......Lie! The "Be Honest" Fight is a prime example of how your honest answer can end with a chilly night on the couch.
(Her): "Do you think I’ve gained weight?” (Me): “Maybe a little bit.” (Her): “WHAT?!” (Me:) "You said be honest….”
That’s the thing about honesty — when someone asks for it, it probably means you should lie. Except when it comes to questions about her weight, her ass and her parents… then you should definitely lie.
How do you fight back when she says, "You did 'this'" and I say, "Well, you did 'that'" and she says, "What about that time in 1941 when you did 'this and that'?" I say, "I wasn't even born in 1941!" and she says, "Don't make excuses! If you were alive, you would have done it!" .....Huh?
Petty arguments always seem to come at inopportune times for me. I think they wait until the bottom of the ninth inning, game tied, two outs and bases loaded to begin their tirades. I wouldn't even think about interrupting a soap opera. I've seen enraged, crazy women before.
I recall once when I was married and my wife asked me what wanted for dinner. I told her I didn't care. Miffed, she asked me again, so I said. "How about steak and salad?" She said we were out of steak.
I said, "Let's have some dolphin fillets." She said,"They're packed in packets of four and it takes too long to defrost them." I quickly said, "What's in the oven right now?" Before she could think about her answer, she blurted, "Roasted chicken and whole potatoes." I said, "That's what I want for dinner." She hung up on me......another future argument.
Remeber, If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there are men on base. ~ Dave Barry
And finally, women get the last word in every argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.....
The News As I See It: Obama's former press secretary, Jay Carney, will reportedly become a senior vice president at Amazon. Carney says he's excited to work for someone who doesn't take six years to deliver.
John Boehner said that Obama's veto of the Keystone XL pipeline was a "national embarrassment." Out of habit, Joe Biden said, "Here!"
Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald got in some hot water this week for saying that he served in the military's Special Forces when he never did. It gets even worse when you find out the place he actually served was Old Navy.
Marijuana is officially legal in Washington, D.C. or as Obama put it, "Clear some space, Michelle, Barry's starting his own garden!"
Hillary Clinton is receiving criticism after telling a crowd to "unlock their full potential," because that line is commonly used by another possible candidate, Carly Fiorina. People said, "You can’t just steal someone’s slogan like that!" and Hillary said, "Yes we can!"
A new study suggests that dishwashers may increase a child's risk of developing allergies. My advice is to stop washing your kids in the dishwasher.
Jamaica has officially decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. That would be great news if anyone in Jamaica had small amounts of marijuana.
This Date In History: 1844; Dominican Republic gained independence from Haiti. 1933; German Reichstag building in Berlin was destroyed by fire. 1951; The 22nd Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, limiting the President to two terms.
1973; Members of the American Indian Movement occupied the village of Wounded Knee, S.D. 1991; Kuwait was liberated in the Gulf War. 2003; Fred Rogers, of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, died. 2012; Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped down as president of Yemen after months of protests.
Picture Of The Day: Arguments can get out of hand, .....and out of your garage, if you let them.
Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Disneyland just raised its ticket prices to $99 a day for kids over 10, however, kids with measles still get in free. 2) I've removed swimming with dolphins from my bucket list, mainly because I don't swim well and drowning with dolphins doesn't have quite the same appeal. 3) Hey! You geese crossing the road! You can fly.......!
4) Christian Mingle: Find God's match for you. Because the Lord works in mysterious ways and I'm positive that setting up a website for his people to hook up is a top priority. 5) The hardest part about going through a divorce is finding a hit man you can trust.....and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Pisces - February 27th: Seek solace in the bosom of a loved one. If your loved one has a particularly ample bosom, be aware that there might be others already in there.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A man goes into hospital for a vasectomy. When he wakes up he's surrounded by several anxious looking doctors and asks nervously, "Is there a problem?"
The head surgeon says gently, with tears in his eyes "I'm afraid so. I'm sorry but your notes got mixed up and we've given you a sex change rather than a vasectomy"
The patient is devastated and shockingly replies "Do you mean to say I'll never experience another erection" The surgeon pauses for a moment then says, "Well, you might, but it won't be yours."
A frustrated wife buys a pair of crotchless panties in an attempt to spice up her dead sex-life. She puts them on, together with a short skirt and sits on the sofa opposite her husband sipping a glass of wine.
At strategic moments she uncrosses her legs wide enough that her husband asks, "Are you wearing crotchless panties?"
She answers with a seductive smile, "Yes....." Her husband says, "Thank God, I thought you were sitting on the cat."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A guy is walking along a sandy southern beach when he comes across a brass lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it the proverbial rub.
A genie springs forth in a cloud and tells him, "You have been granted one wish. Not three. That's a myth. One is all you get, so make it count."
The guy thinks for a moment and says, "I want to live forever." The genie says, "Sorry, I'm not allowed to grant eternal life." The guy says, "OK, then, I want to die right after the Democrats balance the budget and eliminate the debt."
The genie says, "You're a crafty bastard, aren't you."
A 25-year-old Jewish girl tells her Mom that she has missed her period for 2 months. Very worried, the mother goes to the drugstore and buys a pregnancy kit. The test result shows that the girl is pregnant.
Shouting and crying, the mother says, "Who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!" Without answering, the girl picks up the phone and makes a call.
Half an hour later, a Mercedes stops in front of their house. A mature and distinguished man with gray hair and wearing a yarmulke steps out of the car and enters the house.
He sits in the living room with the father, mother and the girl, and tells them, "Your daughter has informed me of the problem. I can't marry her because of my personal family situation, but I'll take charge. I will pay all costs and provide for your daughter for the rest of her life."
Additionally, if a girl is born, I will bequeath two retail furniture stores, a deli, a condo in Miami and a $1,000,000 bank account. If a boy is born, my legacy will be a chain of jewelry stores and a $25,000,000 bank account. However, if there is a miscarriage, I'm not sure what to do. What do you suggest?"
All silent at this point, the mother placed a hand firmly on the man's shoulder and told him, "Screw her again!"
That's it for today, my little fur babies. Remember, bragging about how much you receive in alimony only demonstrates how much someone was willing to pay to get rid of you. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
Have a great weekend and more on Monday.

I don't have any tattoos. No special reason, just never cared for them. Brother Kirt has a few. I remember his first one, the initials of his girlfriend at the time. Good thing they had the same initials. By the way, I brake for animals and pretty women with tattoos.
I don't particularly care if people have tattoos, that is, unless the tattoos are like the man we used to pay ten cents to see at the circus sideshow. Too much of anything gets boring after a while.....well, almost anything.
I like the cute little tats (notice I said "tats") on women. I don't care for the "tramp stamps" they put on or above their ass, it reminds me of of auto tags, They were once the rage with younger girls. They're mostly supposed to be some Asian prayer or deep thought, but I'm guessing they really say "Eat at Sun Ling's Restaurant".
The News As I See It: The White House announced that many Obamacare customers got the wrong tax information and may have to refile their taxes this year. It's pretty inconvenient — mainly just remembering what you lied about the first time you filed your taxes.
New Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that he is open to letting transgender people serve in the military. He said there’s no reason to prevent people from being generals just because of their privates.
The country continues to deal with brutal weather. A group of teenagers in Colorado surprised their neighbors by shoveling 50 driveways and walkways for free. They didn't mean to. They were just too stoned to remember which house was theirs.
The only real Oscar surprises were that "Sniper" didn't win "Best Picture" and Lady Gaga's awesome rendition of "The Sound Of Music" and wore a beautiful dress. They should have had Julie Andrews come out covered in lunch meat or something.
A theater in Colorado accidentally played “Fifty Shades of Grey” instead of “The SpongeBob Movie” to a theater filled with children. Which explains its new name: SpongeBob NoPants. "50 Shades of Grey" has already made $400 million. But to be honest, that money's tied up.
This Date In History: 1570; Elizabeth I, queen of England, was excommunicated by Pope Pius V. 1836; Samuel Colt patented the first revolving barrel multishot firearm. 1870; Hiram Revels became the first black United States senator, taking over the term of Jefferson Davis.
1901; J.P. Morgan formed U.S. Steel Corporation, the first billion-dollar corporation in the world. 1948; Communists took control of the government in Czechoslovakia. 1964; Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) became world heavyweight boxing champion for the first time by knocking out Sonny Liston in Miami Beach.
1983; Tennessee Williams, American playwright, died. 1986; President Ferdinand Marcos fled the Philippines; Corazon Aquino took over the office. 1990; Violeta Chamorro was elected president of Nicaragua, a victory for opponents of the Sandinistas.
Picture Of The Day: Back in the day, a lot of guys, especially the military, got a tattoo on their arm. It was usually something simple like Mom or their girlfriend, sometimes even their military branch. I don't care for this one, but it's the only one I could find with my name.
Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Of all the things I've ever lost, I miss my mind the most. 2) As I get older, I'm really just looking for "Girls Gone Mild". 3) We should really thank our Dads for bringing us into this world since our Moms were probably tired and not in the mood. 4) I asked my girlfriend if she could name the four main food groups. she said, "Canned, frozen, drive-thru and fried." 5) A cute bank teller told me she wanted to make love to me in the bank vault. She's kind of kinky, but at least she's into safe sex......and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Pisces - February 25th: Your long-term plans will come into fruition this month. Beware of speeding buses. Buy some scented candles, tonight may be filled with darkness and/or flatulence.

|42-year-old Cameron Diaz was recently married to the multi-tattooed Benji Madden who promptly had her name tattooed to his chest. I guess there's no accounting for taste.|
The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A man in a Florida supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce. The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce. The man persists and asks to see the manager. The boy says he'll ask his manager about it.
Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, "Some asshole wants to buy half a head of lettuce." As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him and he added, "And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half."
The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way. Later the manager said to the boy, "I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?" The boy replied, "Canada, sir."
The manager asked, "Why did you leave Canada?" The boy said, "Sir, there's nothing in Canada but whores and hockey players."
The manager said, "My wife is from Canada." The boy replied, "No shit? What team did she play for?"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A young couple had only recently set up housekeeping when an unfortunate incident occurred. Early one morning, the wife, drowsy from bed, went to the toilet to pee and neglected to notice that the seat was up. When she sat, she kept going!
She was just the right size and shape so that she became jammed into the toilet past her waist with her legs sticking straight up in front of her. She cried for her husband, who rushed in, and for the next hour tried desperately to free her.
In this process, they removed her sleeping gown, but this only left her naked and still stuck, with a particular part of her anatomy prominently visible between her splayed legs.
Finally, the couple resolved to call a plumber, despite the embarrassing nature of their problem. When the plumber arrived, the young man let him in, but as they were walking to the bathroom, the young man realized that his wife was exposed in a very compromising and humiliating way.
Thinking fast, he ran ahead of the plumber, grabbed a stuffed bunny from the bedroom and placed it over his wife's exposed privates.
The plumber walked into the bathroom, took a long look and said, "Well I think I can save your wife, Buddy, but the rabbit's a goner."
While acquainting himself with a new elderly female patient, the doctor asked, "How long have you been bed-ridden?" After a look of complete confusion she answered, "Why, not for about twenty years.....when my husband was alive."
An elderly couple were driving across the country. The woman was driving when she got pulled over by the highway patrol. The officer said, "Ma'am did you know you were speeding?"
The woman, hard of hearing, turns to her husband and asks, "What did he say?" The old man yells, "He says you were speeding!"
The patrolman says, "May I see your license?" The woman turns to her husband and asks again, "What did he say?" The old man yells, "He wants to see your license!" The woman gave the officer her license.
The patrolman says, "I see you are from Arkansas. I spent some time there once and went on a blind date with the ugliest woman I've ever seen."
The woman turned to her husband and asked, "What did he say?" The old man yells, "He said he knows you!"
That's it for today, my little moon pies. Remember, dandelions are just like regular lions, except they wear ascots and lisp. The moonlight will show me the way to happy hour in AREA 51.

Sunday's Academy Awards, was a lengthy, boring event, with a few exceptions. Lady Gaga was impressive with her rendition of "The Sound Of Music" and even more impressive as she looked surprisingly good, nicely dressed and coiffed instead of looking like a tattooed something the cat dragged in.
Best Picture went to "Birdman" and Best Director went to Alejandro González Iñárritu. Best actor went to Eddie Redmayne ("The Theory of Everything") while Best Actress went to Julianne Moore ("Still Alice"). Best Supporting Actor went to J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Best supporting Actress went to Patricia Arquette ("Boyhood").
|Lady Gaga went all out and looked great|
Clint Eastwood's "The Sniper" was overlooked by the Academy voting members in spite of it's success, but voters being mostly from the liberal left, I wasn't very surprised.
Neal Patrick Harris failed to live up to his own hype and went off-script several times suffering from some really bad joke writing. I see a replacement for next year's Awards, but then again. what do I know?
|"Best Actor" Eddy Redmayne|
Some Oscars viewers and plenty of media types expressed outrage at Joan Rivers' exclusion immediately after Sunday's memorial segment, which featured the names and pictures of more than four dozen industry notables, including Robin Williams, James Garner, Lauren Bacall, Eli Wallach, Mike Nichols and others known for their work off screen. Maybe it's just me, But I can't name one Joan Rivers movie.
While running long, the liberal show types somehow had time to fit in their politics and causes. The overblown production numbers were shoddy at best and, of course, the buzz was all about "Selma" being "snubbed".

The new television agreement with NBC started off on the wrong foot as far as I am concerned with too many commercials, many of which were taken at the wrong time.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A Baptist pastor was presenting a children's sermon. During the sermon, he asked the children if they knew what the resurrection was.
Asking questions during children's sermons is crucial. Asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Two bees met in a field. One said to the other, "How are things going?" The second bee answered, "Really bad. The weather has been cold, wet and damp and there aren't any flowers, so I can't make honey."

A few hours later the two bees ran into each other again. The first bee asked, "How'd it go?" The second bee said, "Great! It was everything you said it would be. There was plenty of fruit and, huge floral arrangements on every table."
The first bee asked, "Uh, what's that thing on your head?" The second bee answered, "That's my yarmulke. I didn't want them to think I was a wasp."

A soldier ran up to a nun. Out of breath he asked, "Please, may I hide under your skirt. I'll explain later." The nun agreed. A moment later two Military Police ran up and asked, "Sister, have you seen a soldier?" The nun replied, "He went that way."
After the MP's ran off, the soldier crawled out from under her skirt and said, "I can't thank you enough Sister. You see, I don't want to go to Syria." The nun said, "I understand completely."
The soldier added, "I hope I'm not rude, but you have a great pair of legs." The nun replied, "If you had looked a little higher, you would have seen a great pair of balls. I don't want to go to Syria either."
